That won't matter to anyone outside the urban areas.

Nuclear Monk: That won't matter to anyone outside the urban areas.


True. The rural parts hate her. Drive down any secondary road and you'll see yard signs that say "My governor is an idiot".

Michigan has some of the bumpkinest bumpkins anywhere. It's one of the reasons I hate it here most of the time.

 I assume this news means fox is adding "So that's why President Putin is right to invade Ukraine. State economies, can they grow too fast? Stick around after the break and we'll get into why it's bad to have high economic growth." to the fox and friends teleprompter tomorrow?

I moved to Michigan from the Deep South this year.  It caught me off guard how little the people changed, aside from the accent.

I'm from here but lived in VA for a while. Gives one perspective on urban vs. rural. Especially when back home at least they leave their ARs at home before heading to Walmart.

You can purchase 80 acres just outside the largest freshwater source on the planet for 40k. With global warming poised to turn the sunbelt scorched, it's an easy bet to set up future generations with land in the U.P.

A wartime economy favors areas with strong manufacturing infrastructure. It will be interesting to see if the Big 3 automobile makers, who currently cannot get enough chips to build cars, suddenly start churning out tanks.

Only three drawbacks: sentient clouds of mosquitoes, a thousand feet of snowfall each winter, and Yoopers.

Those Canadian truckers are jealous. That's why they blocked the flow of goods on the bridge.

Stop trying to make Gretch happen. It's never going to happen.

But she looks like someone's mother, so all that "good governance" since 2018 must be some kind of parlor trick and any true American Patriots (TM) should continue to underestimate her, insult her or try to kidnap her until Trump can he declared God Emperor of Ysplanti.

I think it was a play on that (admittedly stupid and annoying) meme about making "fetch" happen.

Gretchen graduated the same year I did from a high school across town.  I should've gone to law school.  I'm lucky my 11 acres is way above Lake Michigan, no flooding for me.

She's a smart cookie. Look for her in national positions after her term (or terms) is done.

My wife wants to move up north when we retire. I'd rather move to Arizona. In doing research for my position, I found out that Flagstaff AZ actually gets more snow that Traverse City MI. I know that's not in the U.P., but I was still impressed. If not the U.P., we joke that she'd want to move to Moosonee, Ont. Canada. No point really, just a fact I found interesting.

That's not fair. The Midwest is way more segregated than the South.

Traverse City. Small town feel, big city traffic.

Not mine, unfortunately. I do have one, though. I installed a "roller bridge" (Google it, good luck finding the right width, mine was a nightmare) on mine. It uses wheels instead of those pingy v-shaped saddles. I can Neil Young the fark out of it and stays in tune.
